I am supposed to be going to the grocery store, but I was up from 4am-9am with stomach problems..so all I really want to do is nap!
I had a lot of fun last night with blackcat452mandie_rw
, and hiraimi
at Pottsgrove Manor by Candlelight
. We met up at the lovely blackcat452
's really nice house (omg she has the biggest sewing room EVER I could just die of jealousy (AND I got to peak at her Francaise, it's gonna be a knock out!)). Which led to the inevitable group changing, I do so love getting to ask everyone about their quirky dressing habits.
The House was beauitful, they actually did a nice job of crowd control and we weren't outside for nearly as long as last time. Because we weren't smashed like sardines, we got to actually hear what the guides were saying and see everything. There were actually a lot of people there dressed up, they really ran the gamut from bad home dec braid, to several very lovely sack gowns. Granted we were still the only people dressed and NOT volunteering. They had a man playing a beautiful harpsichord and a few ladies and gentlemen dancing, which made me REALLY want to throw a 12th night ball someday with dancing and punch. (okay I've wanted to do that since reading about it in Felicity books when I was 9...why do you think I got into this hobby?).
There was much more to see on this house tour, but we did kinda miss the campfire hanging out that we got at Peter Wentz, they made us feel so welcome. It also bugged me that they kept switching between "servants" and "slaves" as if they were exactly the same thing, but to my understanding, and correct me if I'm wrong, the difference between being an indentured servant and a slave was pretty significant.
We weren't allowed to take pictures inside, but the DSLR actually takes fairly decent low-light photos so we braved a few outside just for curiouschilde
so she can't yell at me! ( What everyone else wore )( oh and in case you're wondering what happened with the dress of evil )The full album of pictures is here.
